Forgiving

The other side of being forgiven is forgiving. “And forgive us our debts (sins) as we forgive our debtors (those who sin against us )”. Matt. 6:12

FORGIVING

Forgiving sets us free.
It is the most important step
in healing a broken heart
It initiates the process for recovering hope.
It is the catalyst
that enables us to look to the future
and away from the past.
It allows us to learn
from hurtful experiences
and not wallow in them.
It delivers us from self absorption.
It lets us wipe the slate clean.
It enables us to let go and go on.
It lifts the burden of anger, bitterness and regret
and replaces it with peace and joy.
It is the ultimate expression of Love.

It is how God showed his love to us.

It places no expectation on the forgiven.
It merely says to the forgiven one
that there is hope that they, too,
can learn to love.
